Comments on: Obama dines with conservative columnists http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/01/14/obama-dines-with-conservative-columnists/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Bill http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/01/14/obama-dines-with-conservative-columnists/comment-page-1/#comment-387281 Thu, 15 Jan 2009 02:05:39 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=14949#comment-387281 Tony Pate – I couldn’t disagree with you more. What’s the difference between having dinner with a group of people who don’t usually agree with you and talking to Iranians, or Cubans? By the way, you must not read the work of those people who attended the dinner. I don’t know about all of them, but Brooks has certainly written some complimentary columns about Obama. I guess you weren’t listening when Obama said there’s not a red and blue America, or a white & black America, etc., there is the United States of America. His life experiences are so different from yours and mine that, I think, people have a very difficult time understanding what he says, and does.

It certainly isn’t because Obama is shrewd. He just knows he won’t be treated the same way Bush was.

I doubt it. I don’t believe there is much any difference between the democrat and republican party. Divide and conquer. I don’t trust Obama for one second and I sure would not have trusted McCain, Clinton, Huckabee, or any of them. Well, except Dr. Pual of course he is the exception to the rule.

I could care less of what he does from here on. Does Obama actually think he can get some conservatives on his site. Obama will never get conservatives to vote for him or any of these writers to write anything good about him. These are the same writers who thrashed Obama before. But I am afraid in trying to please the shrinking conservatives he may actually antagonize much of his liberal base and eventually become a non-effective President.

OBAMA MUST STOP THIS NONSENSE AND DO SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST SITUATION AND END THE HUMAN SUFFERING.

Secret Service cleared the room of all Fly’s prior to 44’s arrival.

I can understand if the left wing is nervous about this. I would be too.

Bravo Barack. Such a turnaround from the dark days of a President who could not bring himself to listen, much less converse intelligently, with those who might have had a different view poit.
